Veteran’s Administration loans are a benefit that goes to veterans of our country. When a veteran wants to purchase a home, the Veteran’s Administration (VA) will help them get a loan. The financing still comes from the bank, but the VA guarantees the loan with the bank. They guarantee that if the borrower can’t make the payments, they’ll buy the loan from the bank. Unfortunately, this happens far too often and the home goes into foreclosure. VA will then purchase the home and try to sell it to another buyer.
To avoid foreclosure, VA recommends many helpful suggestions for the borrowers to try. One of these is to contact the bank and let them know that you are having financial difficulties. Banks are usually very eager to help rather than have a foreclosure. VA or banks don’t want to see a home repossessed because it’s a lot of unnecessary paperwork, time and money.
